The Weekend Hotness: Nintendo Ambassador

The 3DS dropped in price this weekend, and thus, the window to join Nintendo’s exclusive ambassador program has closed. One of our newly appointed representatives promises sweeping changes for the betterment of Nintendo Land. “I will make sure that Mario gets to eat that Peach, and Luigi gets to plant that Daisy” is a platform I can get behind!

In less political news, Daniel Starkey interviews one of the leaders of Operation Moonfall, the BritToid podcast is back with more British “humour,” Battlefield 3 causes even more rage, and “BWA HA HA HA! The NES isn’t worth $13,000, you jackhole!”
